There and Back Again

Sorry for the delay in announcement, but things have been extremely busy here. I'm happy to say that my son's surgery was a success. We're back home from the hospital and he's recovering well. His curvature was corrected from 69 degrees to 15 degrees, which is excellent. He had some rough times at the hospital, but he was very brave.

I was amazed at what he endured really. Now we're very glad he's home and mending well. I'm still watching over him most nights until he can be more independent, but he's getting stronger each day.

Thanks to all of you for your kind words and good wishes. It's meant a great deal to me. Here you can see some photos of the gardens at Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas.

Below are two photos of a chef picking herbs in the kitchen garden at Dell.

They really take the time to pick the herbs each day. It's amazing what work and detail they put into each task.

Now if only the nurses had ever changed the sheets on my son's bed....but that's another story. Thank goodness we had a fantastic surgeon at least. Hurrah for Dr. Jay Shapiro. He is our hero!
